Images (disk images) are the artifacts produced by OPS. These disk images can be ran on a variety of hypervisors including the top public cloud providers such as AWS and Google Cloud.

All local images are stored locally in ~/.ops/images/ and can be viewed like:

$ ops image list -t onprem

OPS has several commands that allow one to work on disk images when not running them. This can help provide debugging support.


ops image ls myimage

Provides a 'ls' style listing of files in image.


ops image cp -r redis-server lib .

Recursively copies the output of the folder '/lib' into the host from the image 'redis-server'.


ops image tree redis-server

Displays the tree output of the image 'redis-server'.
